RHarris-271x300

DRUM|PRIME’s editor-in-chief had the opportunity to sit down with Bay Area drummer, Rich Harris, to talk about his work with his band, Zed. In this audio cast, we get a glimpse into the band, as well as Rich’s approach to the drums, his influences, and gear.

The Obelisk’s Top 20 of 2013 Reader’s Poll was compiled from 335 lists, with point values assigned to the rankings on the lists submitted. Clutch’s ‘Earthrocker’ ran away with it, however ZED’s ‘Desperation Blues’ did garner a #11 and a #20 ranking on 2 different lists! We were also pleased to see our friends Spiralarms receive votes as well, with ‘Freedom’ ranking #9, #17 and #19 on 3 different lists.

On lists that were dominated by the likes of Clutch, Red Fang, Sasquatch, QOTSA, Black Sabbath, Alice in Chains and Monster Magnet, we’re stoked to have been mentioned in the same company.
